ALIEN INVADERS: All About Invasive Species

Math & Science


Invasive non-native plants and animals are changing the landscape of the United States, coming in as a result of globalization of transportation and trade, and putting U.S. ecosystems and lands at an increasingly greater risk of damage due to invaders. Weeds take over important habitat areas for wildlife, devastating shelter and forage while reducing the diversity and quantity of native plants. Non-native animals out-compete endemic and native species for food and thereby upset the natural balance.

Teachers at all K-12 grade levels can integrate lessons on the cultural, historical, ecological and economic impact of invasive species into their curriculum. This course will provide field experiences in the region of choice and thereby enable teachers to become familiar with their local habitats and the threats of non-native species therein.
